Floor Scraping

At AHF we have a real passion for for wood as a natural material and that’s we we offer custom floor refinishing in the form of hand scraping and distressing, this work is so niche that as far as we are aware we are the only company in the UK to offer this service and we even have to make our own tools to do it.

In days gone by before the advent of floor sanding machines floors were refinished by being scraped by hand. This has long been since been abandoned because its much more labour intensive

So why hand scrape a floor? Hand scraping has several benefits and advantages over sanding, when a craftsman scrapes a floor he can accentuate the grain and figure of the wood, for example making knots more prominent ,This gives the floor a very naturally worn appearance,, This appearance also means that any future damage to the floor is likely to blend in and simply add to the character where on a sanded floor it would stand out a mile.

Scraping a floor also creates no dust while our personal favorite reason for scraping a floor is the feeling of it barefoot, walking around becomes a wonderful tactile experience
